CNC Interface, Workholding System Integrate Automation
VersaBuilt, with Universal Robots, showcases the CNC Communication URCap interface and MultiGrip workholding system for collaborative robot integration.
The MultiGrip workholding system includes an automatic vise, machinable jaws and an end-of-arm tool for the UR robot. The system enables the robot and the CNC to share a set of MultiGrip machinable jaws for in feed, out feed and CNC machining, resulting in reduced engineering costs, easier robot programming, faster setup time, and enhanced processing capabilities.
Developments, strategies, processes and technologies are available to help ensure an efficient toolroom.
Defining expectations and determining the ROI of collaborative robots help guide sound investment choices.
